here tomorroas we inaugurate a president and observe the holiday, honoring the memory of dr. martin luther king, jr. but there will be other reminders of this nation's long journey on the road to inclusion. among them, a high school marching band from arkansas and a civil rights pioneer who bookend a vivid story of how far this nation has come. the name is the same, but the little rock central high school of 2013 marches to a different drum. the irony will be inescapable when this racially mixed group of students from little rock's most infamous school perform at the second inauguration of america's first black president. >> we are not just historic because of what happened in 1957. we are great in academics, music, which is why we are going to the inauguration. >> reporter: 1957. before these students and even the president himself were born. little rock central high was not a great place then, but rather the flashpoint in the battle over court-ordered school desegregation, forced by the federal government to accept black students. >> at 8:28 this morning, little rock time, the nine negro students

lincoln's bible was the traveling bible of the rev. dr. martin luther king, jr. >> so help you god? me god. congratulations, mr. president. >> brown: this was the fourth time the chief justice and presidenhaddone this together. in 2009 they had to re-do the oath at the white house after roberts stumbled over some of the words in the public ceremony and president obama was officially sworn in for his second term yesterday in a private ceremony at the white house to meet the constitutional requirement that the oath be taken on january 20. today the president began his second inaugural address with a nod to the country's founding doctrines. >> each time we gather to inaugurate a president, we bear witness to the enduring strength of our constitution. we affirm the promise of our democracy. we recall that what binds this nation together is not the colors of our skin or the tenets of our faith or the origins of our names. what makes us exceptional, what makes us american is our allegiance to an idea articulated in a declaration made more than two centuries ago: we hold these truths to be self-e

. martin luther king. it's also on martin luther king holiday. what's the mood there in washington? >> well, i have to tell you, it's a little quiet. i walked by the white house earlier today, and they were still putting up the reviewing stand. there were some folks there. some, you know, very excited. talking to the cab driver on the way over here to the studio tonight, he's saying, yeah, it seems really quiet. i mean, people are definitely coming into town and congress members say they've gotten rid of all the tickets. that they had more people asking for tickets than they could help. so, i mean, but there's no question that it is a little subdued compared to four years ago. last time, of course, there was a new president, new first family. it was a historic election. i think this time it's a little more subdued because there's a little more realism and the level of hope and the expectations are a little lower which may, in fact, be helpful to barack obama in his second term because the expectations the first time were just so sky high. >> we've had some reality checks obviously
